During an unprecedented global crisis, every industry faces unique challenges. Recruitment organizations have an exclusive connection with a plethora of industries as staffing needs fluctuate, and the past few months have brought about unparalleled instability. How can recruitment agencies best address the challenges caused by the Coronavirus?
Recruiting is a time-consuming process. Staffing agencies determined to find the best-fit candidates for their clients often juggle hundreds of applications, thousands of emails, job listings across multiple platforms, and interview preparation. Managing each piece of the recruiting process across dozens of website programs or physical files can be overwhelming.
In some instances, parts of the hiring process get rushed. At times, applicants fall through the cracks, lost in piles of paperwork and a frenzied schedule. Here are some questions to ask about an applicant tracking system.
Staffing agencies understand the importance of timely, organized communication for effective talent acquisition. Simultaneously, many recruiters struggle with manually managing hundreds of applicants in various stages of the recruitment process! Keeping up with emails, applications, interview notes, and documents can be overwhelming and ineffective – even creating a negative candidate experience at times.
As a recruitment company, an applicant tracking system is one of your most valuable tools. Is your recruitment team still manually sorting through countless candidate applications? Do important emails tend to get lost over time? Are interviews, schedules, and appointment managed across multiple applications? Have you lost and let a top-notch candidate slip through the cracks due to forgetfulness or human error?

How Does Applicant Management Software Work?
Applicant Management Software (AMS), also known as Applicant Tracking Software, helps recruiters and other hiring professionals find, track and manage available candidates for open roles. Often, AMS systems are used for staffing suppliers and managers who compete to find talent for contract roles.
The time is ripe for medical staffing to help the hospital system, and health systems more broadly. As the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) states, “The U.S. is projected to experience a shortage of Registered Nurses (RNs) that is expected to intensify as Baby Boomers age and the need for healthcare grows.” The same might be said for other segments of medicine, such as technicians, physicians in rural locations and physician’s assistants.
As the staffing and contract work market grows, the reality is that employee on-boarding must change, too. As the federal government loosens restrictions for I-9 compliance, building remote work into the process, staffing organizations can now resort to virtual methods of verifying hired employees’ identities. (And not only staffing organizations and enterprises, but hiring organizations in general.)
